Achieve Jimi Hendrix's Iconic Tone

Armed with custom-wound pickups, Seymour Duncan's Jimi Hendrix Signature Loaded Pickguard is primed for serious sonic voodoo. Harness the bridge pickup's prominent attack and aggressive harmonics to craft stinging leads. Or ease into Jimi's signature hybrid lead/rhythm style using the neck pickup. At Sweetwater, we've also used the neck pickup for chords, bluesy licks, and double-stops with great results. Bringing the middle pickup into play yields plenty of classic Strat tone. These pickups strive for authenticity. Their magnets are even staggered in reverse to mimic the effect of playing your guitar upside down. If you've been chasing Jimi's iconic tone, your quest ends with the Seymour Duncan Jimi Hendrix Signature Loaded Pickguard. This preloaded pickguard only fits guitars with swimming pool or humbucker routing.

How Seymour Duncan helped craft Jimi's iconic guitar tone

On March 28, 1968, Seymour W. Duncan gave Jimi Hendrix a bag of early 1960s Strat pickups that he had rewound. Jimi's guitar tech, Roger Mayer, installed the custom-wound pickups in Jimi's famous white Stratocaster that very night. Jimi was so impressed with the pickups, he had Seymour carry the guitar up to the stage. That unforgettable night greatly inspired Seymour and set his future in motion. The accuracy of this Jimi Hendrix Signature Loaded Pickguard leaves no doubt as to Seymour Duncan's intimate insight into Jimi's tone. You don't have Jimi's fingers, of course, but this loaded pickguard gets you about as close as you can get to capturing his magical tone.

Wow! Don't hesitate to get these!

I can't stop smiling. Only pickups that ever made me smile by playing the first note. I was hesitant due to the lack of reviews, but I had enough faith in Seymour to take a chance, and he did not disappoint! I've had the pleasure of playing all sorts of pickups and stratocasters over the years and I had these installed in my favorite strat. They will not be coming back out anytime soon.
